7 Best Medieval Games to Play on Android

Medieval Games to Play

Medieval games come from historical themes. If I love to read about kings and queens, dynasties, civilizations, and historical magicians and dragons, I also like playing the games made on them.

Besides this, there have been wars in history, medieval wars or the wars of the Middle Ages, where the military tactics were forced to change due to the cultural, technological, and social developments during that era.

Coming back to such games, the majority of them bring the historical setting to life on the table and lead the players into it to witness the event, as well as classic ranged weapons and the atmosphere.

In games with wars, I relied on ancient weapons like the axe or the sword and my position in the battlefield to defeat the enemies.

Where to find these games?

At the Google Play Store, you can simply search for Medieval games to play, and you will find tens of them.

Simply download these free game apps on your Android phone and travel back in time to a time when wars were traditionally fought on foot or in armour.

Final Thoughts

I have installed and played these games on Android mobile. I only bought the free ones because I could not afford to buy the games.

I am also not interested in in-app purchases, as there are ways to get more credits to play for free.

I also found that you can play these games even on PCs, iPhones, and consoles.
